“Fancies, you know, have often taken as strong a hold of the human mind as facts; and so we are not entitled to despise these fancies. We must proceed to rigid historical enquiry for ourselves. …” Thomas Cooper.

From a book worth glancing through. There are some glaring cultural differences, coming from a time when ‘colonialism’ was perhaps more a term of praise than derision – but I like the style of the writing, and it is most certainly mind-expanding.
